Couple Share Their Inspiring Story with the Shankly

At the Shankly Hotel in Liverpool we were delighted to play host to inspiring couple Katie and Sam, who stayed with us over the Merseyside Derby weekend.

When tragedy struck in January 2016, Katie was left with a long recovery journey ahead. However, the unfortunate twist of fate didn’t hold Katie back; after making an inspiring recovery, we wanted to lend a small helping hand on behalf of Bill Shankly himself.

Katie’s Inspiring Story

In January 2016, Katie was making her way to work when she found herself faced with treacherous black ice. When her car skidded along the ice and tragically hit a tree, the accident caused significant injuries.

Thankfully, Katie’s local air ambulance team were able to airlift her to the major trauma unit in Plymouth, where she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit with a severe head injury.

3 weeks after being moved to a ward, Katie suffered a further setback; she required emergency surgery to her abdomen, meaning an extra three weeks on the Intensive Care Unit.

As time passed, Katie was transferred to a neuro rehabilitation unit where she was faced with the harrowing task to learn to walk, talk and regain her independence. After a turbulent time away from home, Katie was finally discharged home on the 28th April 2016.

A Miraculous Recovery 

The brave Primary Education student was completing the third year of her degree when the accident struck. Defying the odds, Katie has been able to return to studying, amazingly picking up her degree where she had left off.

Prior to the accident, Katie had bought tickets to take her boyfriend to watch the Liverpool v Sunderland match in February for his birthday.

A passionate LFC fan, Sam had never been to a home match before and the couple were devastated when their plans fell through. Katie and Sam were unable to attend the match as Katie had been readmitted to Intensive Care that weekend.

When Katie’s friend got in touch with Shankly Hotel Director and Bill’s Grandson Chris, to share her story, Liverpool Football Club stepped in to offer two tickets for Katie and Sam to attend the Merseyside Derby.

As the couple were in search of accommodation, we were delighted to welcome them to stay at the Shankly for two nights to top off their weekend with an extra touch.

We’re so pleased that Katie and Sam had an enjoyable stay with us at the Shankly Hotel. Bill Shankly was a man of the people and we always aim to celebrate his character and outstanding morals.

We would love to see Katie and Sam again soon and wish Katie the best of luck with her surgery coming up in May!

Horse Racing Tips, Tricks and Superstitions from the Shankly Hotel

When it comes to picking a winning horse at the races there’s a fine art to it. Most of us choose horses based on the name or the colour of the jockey’s silks, often there’s a lack of actual research or science behind our final decision and whenever we’ve managed to pick a winner it’s from sheer dumb luck. This year prepare yourselves and see if you two can perfect the art of “handicapping” to pick yourself a winner during Grand National weekend in Liverpool.

Art not Science

Grand National weekend Liverpool - art of handicapping

The art of picking a winning horse is called “handicapping”, using all the information at your disposal to select a horse more likely to win the race. We’ve simplified some of the basics for you below by giving you some questions to ask yourself before making a choice;

  • Where has the horse ran before and at what distance?

If the horse has performed well on a similar course in recent races this is a positive.

  • What condition was the track surface of the race previously run and is it the same as the track on the day of the race you are attending?

If not the horse may not perform the same for better or worse.

  • Has the horse travelled to race?

If so there is a likely hood that those involved in the shipping will be pushing the horse harder to recoup any travel expenses.

  • Has your horse had a holiday?

The ideal time for a break between races is between 30-45days. Any longer and the horse may need at least one run to get back in the game.

  • How many races has your chosen horse started in?

A good average of starts for a horse is around 13, an over raced horse may have experience but could do with a well-deserved holiday. Try and aim for lightly raced horses and watch out for the first time or new runners. These are a gamble as they could be raring to go but are also inexperienced.

Odds and Statistics

Calculating the odds of an intended bet can be quite confusing for those with little or no experience in betting and gambling.

A good thing to know is that the majority of winners are actually less than 20-1 on the morning line. Meaning the experienced odds maker has predicted the end of the day odds which are influenced by public betting throughout the day.

Check for recently beaten favourites as these are horses that can turn around their performance in later races. At the same time keep an eye out for horses that are always overbet and favoured and avoid them as they are unlikely to hold any value.

If the odds from your horses last few races were between 2-1 and 6-1 it shows money was taken from those races and the horse was expected to perform better. These horses are anticipated likely winners in their next races.

Lastly, high odds winners tend to repeat winning performances so pay attention to those that have come in winning at high prices.

Myths and Old Wives Tales

Grand National weekend Liverpool

There are a few tricks that long time gamblers will always employ when taking their money to the bookmaker. We thought we’d list the top 10 superstitions and see if they help or hinder yours during Grand National weekend in Liverpool.

  1. Bet on 10 stone Jockeys and 10-year-Old horses
  2. Never bet on fillies against colts
  3. Pick a horse wearing your lucky number or colour
  4. Always pick the younger horse in a race full of old timers
  5. Do not bet last minute
  6. Never let another person place your bet
  7. Grey horses for grey days
  8. Bet on horses with Gold or Win in their names
  9. Put your race ticket in the same pocket as your cash, money attracts money
  10. Use the same pocket for your race tickets until you lose then change pockets.

A Sure Thing

If you’d like to learn more about how to pick a winner and what factors determine the odds, make a visit to the Grand National Premier at St George’s Hall on 5th April.

The organisers have enlisted the advice of a panel of racing experts to help you mark your card for the races. They will be talking about form, luck and helping any race goers pick between the losers and hopefully help pick a big winner for a lucky few on the day.

Also, proceeds from the event are donated to Stamp out Suicide.
